Soul Sunday

One who conquers himself is greater than another who conquers a thousand times a thousand on the battlefield. ~ Buddha
 
If we want to change the world, or simply change the life we live.... we must first start by changing ourselves.  Ask ourselves what type of person we are and who we truly want to be or become?  And what we truly want out of life? 


We have the power to change ourselves, the paths we are on and even the world around us. We can essentially be part of the problem or the solution.  It's always better to try though then to never have tried at all.  But it's up to us each of us.

Essentially we have to live with ourselves, to look in the mirror and find an answer for the decisions we have made in the past and continue to make today.  If there are regrets why would we choose to have even more regrets, or things we wished we had done. 

The choices we make today, will affect the tomorrows.  So why not make good choices.  Why not make a conscious effort to change ourselves for the better, to become great souls.

Fact is patterns of behavior in society are created, or at least fed and maintained, by all of us through the choices we make every day. Individually, as we change ourselves, we affect the patterns that we are aligned with or, in other words, that we support through our actions.

 If we simply choose to act in more compassionate or seek ways of aligning our purpose in life with solutions that benefit humanity, then individually we start to change the world because we withdraw from old patterns and align ourselves with ones that better serve humanity.  

Such simple acts can be contagious allowing others to follow. Little positive changes can have a domino effect on those around us, those around others and so on.  But essentially the change begins within us. 

 Our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as being able to remake ourselves.  ~Gandhi
